His players sat silently in the corner of the locker room. Much like he did when he was a player at Maryland more than a quarter century ago, Archbishop Spalding boys basketball coach Derrick Lewis measured his words carefully before speaking. "I lost a bunch of games over a long career, but I never gave up," Lewis said in a low, but forceful voice. "A lot of you guys gave up tonight. " A few minutes before, Loyola embarrassed the Cavaliers, 69-49, on Senior Night. Lewis used the loss as an opportunity to give his players a bit of a history lesson, recalling his junior year in College Park, which was Bob Wade's first season as coach.

Archbishop Spalding senior Jade Scaife spent most of three quarters of the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship game against McDonogh sitting on the bench, frustrated for herself, but confident in her teammates. Finally, after McDonogh's Danielle Edwards hit a 3-pointer to give the Eagles a 39-35 lead with 5:23 left in regulation, Scaife took over. She scored 12 of her team's final 20 points and sparked the Cavaliers (27-1) to a 55-46 victory at Goucher College.

St. Frances coach Nick Myles had some concerns about his team having a week off after earning a first-round bye as the top seed in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs. That type of layoff can potentially cause a team to lose some of its edge at the most crucial time of the season. The No. 1 Panthers, however, showed no ill effects against No. 5 John Carroll in Friday's semifinal and took control by forcing several early turnovers and converting a couple of clutch 3-pointers.

At times this season, Archbishop Spalding's girls basketball team has gone away from its inside strength, but the No. 1 Cavaliers used their physical advantage with 5-foot-11 Camille Calhoun and 6-foot Jade Scaife to earn their fourth straight trip to the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference championship. Calhoun scored eight of her 14 points in the first quarter and had 15 rebounds in the game, while Scaife finished with 17 points and five rebounds as the host Cavaliers won their semifinal Thursday, 61-52, over No. 5 Roland Park in a game that was much closer than the final score.

Archbishop Spalding athletic director Jeff Parsons has been looking for someone to permanently replace longtime football coach Mike Whittles, who died of pancreatic cancer in June. On Wednesday, Parsons announced that Kyle Schmitt, who coached at Atholton for the past four years, has been named the new coach of the Cavaliers. Schmitt, who played football at Maryland, compiled a 38-9 record and led the Raiders to playoff appearances in all four seasons. Atholton lost in the Class 3A East regional final in 2011 and 2012.

Boys basketball practice at Archbishop Spalding on Saturday was more than just running drills, practicing jumpers and preparing for Sunday afternoon's game at St. Maria Goretti, a 58-56 loss for the Cavaliers. For fifth-year coach Derrick Lewis and the Cavaliers, it was a chance to learn about life and deal with the trying circumstances that came from an incident during Friday night's game at St. Frances. When the Cavaliers returned to their locker room at halftime, they found their belongings had been sorted through and some items were missing.

An incident at St. Frances during Friday night's boys basketball game against Archbishop Spalding resulted in the game being suspended at halftime after the visiting Cavaliers alleged some electronic items were stolen from their locker room. “Two phones were missing and [Spalding coach] Derrick [Lewis] said his kids didn't want to play the second half,” St. Frances coach Nick Myles said on Saturday morning. St. Frances had a 17-15 lead going into halftime when the game was halted.

The smile on John Carroll coach Keith Watson's face was apparent. He had plenty of reason for wearing it, too. Watson's third-ranked Patriots used a dominant effort in the middle weights and five pins to defeat host Archbishop Spalding in the finals and win the Spalding Cavalier Duals. The Patriots went 5-0 in the tournament to take the crown. South River finished third in the tournament, defeating Loudon County High School from Northern Virginia, 52-9, in the third-place match.

After falling to No. 1 Archbishop Spalding by 19 points last month, the No. 3 McDonogh girls basketball players knew to avenge that loss, they had to successfully battle the powerful Cavaliers in the paint. In Friday night's rematch, Brianna Jacobs set the tone with eight rebounds in the first quarter and Jamiera Johnson scored the game-winning layup on a feed from Danielle Edwards with 10 seconds left to give the host Eagles a 41-40 upset and deal the Cavaliers their first loss of the season.

With her team clinging to a four-point lead and an undefeated season hanging in the balance, Archbishop Spalding's Jade Scaife muscled her way through a pack of St. Frances defenders and made a layup to provide some cushion. Scaife then grabbed a defensive rebound on the next possession and fired an outlet pass that led to another layup by Torri Chestnut. Those crucial plays helped the No. 1 Cavaliers escape with a 64-54 victory over the No. 7 Panthers on Wednesday night. Spalding improved to 15-0 on the season and sits atop the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.
